Chapter 61: Skylar’s Strategy
Today’s the day I get discharged from the hospital.
Early this morning, I sent a message to Jennifer, telling her not to come to pick me up because I wanted to be alone with Dylan.
Now was the perfect time to try to get Dylan to accept our mate bond.
Jennifer understood it immediately.
To my delight, she even asked Dylan to pick me up.
I could barely contain my excitement.I wanted to have dinner and watch a movie with Dylan.
If things went well, maybe we’d get even do something a bit more intimate.
At the thought of this, I changed into a **** dress and waited for Dylan in the ward.
I didn’t have to wait long.
Dylan soon showed up at the door to the ward in a suit.
His handsome face made my heart skip a beat, but when my eyes landed on his empty hands, my heart sank.
Dylan was no romantic.
He didn’t even bring flowers! I tried to shrug it off.
When I saw Dylan staring at my outfit, I got excited again.
But why was he frowning? Didn’t I look good in the dress? He must have bad taste in fashion if he thought otherwise.
“What’s that look on your face?” I asked him unhappily.
When I saw his eyes land on my bare shoulders, I couldn’t help but smile.
He was probably looking at my charming collarbone.
But before I could say anything, he began to take off his coat.
I couldn’t help but step back.
Were things moving too fast? Then, I felt something warm embrace my body.
He slipped his coat around my shoulders, mumbling, “It’s cold outside.You might get sick.”
I was moved.Such a kind gesture from him made me so happy.
“What do you care?” I asked teasingly.
“You just don’t want others to look at me, huh?” His expression turned cold.
“Oh, please.You’ve just recovered from your injury.You shouldn’t dress so little.”
“Fine.” I couldn’t help but pout.
I felt very frustrated.This werewolf was just too unromantic.But for the sake of our future, I needed to make him fall in love with me.
That way, we would follow Moon Goddess’s arrangement and hold a mate ceremony.
I broke into a flirtatious smile, trying to get things back on track.
“How about we have dinner and then watch a movie, Dylan?”
Without even glancing at me, Dylan shook his head.
“You need to go home and get some rest.”
He was so dense! Couldn’t he tell that I was asking him out?
“Are you sure you don’t want to go?” I asked again.
He shook his head firmly.
‘Fine! If that’s what he wants, then so be it! Why on earth does Moon Goddess match me up with someone so dull?’ On the bright side, he was so handsome.
Maybe his good looks were enough for me to see past his coldness.
I needed to win him over.
Suddenly, an idea occurred to me.
While Dylan was distracted, I quickly took out my phone and sent a message to Daniel.
“Please help me. I’ll call you in a bit.Agree to everything I say, okay? Please, my friend.
My happiness depends on you.”Seconds later, Daniel sent me an OK emoji.
I raised my head from the phone and cleared my throat.
“Are you sure you don’t want to go to the movies with me, Dylan?” Dylan shook his head again.
“Okay, then.I’ll ask someone else to go with me,” I said through gritted teeth.
Then, I rang Daniel in front of him.He picked up almost immediately.
I put my phone on speaker to make sure that Dylan could hear whatever Daniel said.
lf Dylan knew that I was about to ask a werewolf out on a date, he wouldn’t be so calm.
Batting my eyelashes, I asked in a coquettish tone, “Didn’t you say you would take me swimming sometime? How about we go now?”
Daniel was stunned by her sudden request.
However, he quickly recovered and replied, “Okay.Where are you now? I’ll pick you up.”
After telling Daniel where I was, I hung up the phone triumphantly.
Then, I studied Dylan’s expression, not wanting to miss any nuance.
Unexpectedly, Dylan shrugged indifferently.
“I guess I’ll get going.I wouldn’t want to disturb your date.”
He was so stubborn! Did he not care about me? I was confident he would bow to me soon enough.
A little while later, Dylan and I made it to the beach.The sun was shining brightly, and I had changed into a bikini.
AS we walked towards the water, I slipped my arm into Daniel’s intimately.
At the same time, I looked around casually, hoping to find Dylan.
Sure enough, I spotted someone wearing a peaked cap not far away.
He lowered his head to avoid my gaze, but I instantly knew it was Dylan.
We were mates, after all; of course I recognized his scent.
As expected, Dylan had followed me.
He liked me! I had to add some more fuel to the fire, so I drew closer to Daniel.
“Daniel, just follow my lead, okay?”
I whispered into his ear.
I deliberately made it look like I was about to kiss him.
To my surprise, Daniel scooted away from me and tried to shake off my hand.
“Daniel, what are you doing? Just help me!”
I made his hand rest on my waist and threw myself at him.Daniel gritted his teeth.
“What the **** are you doing?”
If Daniel didn’t know my character well, he wouldn’t have acted the play.
But he treated me as a friend and acted with me for so long.
I felt a little sorry for him.
“The guy following us is my mate.Our is a bit strained, so I was hoping you’d play along to make him jealous,”
I explained to Daniel in a low voice.He was happy that I found my mate.
“Okay, fine.I’ll do my best to cooperate with you, but which one is he?”
As he spoke, Daniel was craning his neck, trying to look around.
“Don’t be so obvious!”
He might alert Dylan and the jig would be up! “Then why hasn’t he come yet?”
Daniel did as he was told and faced forward.
Even I began to doubt my plan.
Maybe I needed to kick things up a notch.
I pulled Daniel to sit in front of me and shoved a bottle of sunscreen into his hand.
“How about you rub some sunscreen onto my legs?” Daniel rolled his eyes.
But I had made up my mind.
I lay down in front of him and closed my eyes.
I knew everyone’s eyes were on me, since my swimsuit was especially flattering.I didn’t care.I was willing to do this for Dylan! As I lay on the sand, I cracked one eye open just a bit, to check how Dylan would react.
Daniel stared at the bottle of sunscreen in his hand in disbelief.
It looked like he really didn’t want to do what I asked of him.
Fortunately for him, before he could do anything, Dylan came over.
He grasped Daniel by the collar and yanked him away from me.
“You just got out of the hospital! You shouldn’t even be at the beach!”
He angrily pulled me to my feet.
Daniel came back to his senses and put his hand on Dylan’s shoulder dauntingly.
“Who are you? What makes you think you can get in between me and Skylar?”
Dylan’s anger seemed to reach its peak.
“I’m her mate.After saying that, he pulled me towards him and put a shirt on me.When he was done clothing me, he scooped me up in his arms.It all happened so fast, I didn’t even have the time to speak.When it hit me that Dylan was carrying me off, I couldn’t help but giggle softly.
I turned back and winked victoriously at Daniel.
“Thank you, Daniel!” I mouthed.
